Michael Graves' 1985 addition of the Whitney Museum presented an opportunity to investigate critical issues relating to the tradition of American architecture and its relationship between art. Storefront invited artists and architects to submit their visions of the Whitney Museum with drawings or models in creating a visual forum to discuss the above questions. The proposals addressed a museum's challenge to organize the physical structure with displayed works. How can architecture house the spirit of the art within, and how could the new design for the Whitney, now as the Museum for American Art, reveal a specifically American architecture? Among the 70 respondents were Christo, Todd Ayoung, Eugene Tsui, and Carolee Schneemann.
